Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said on his official Twitter account, "Patrols will be held around religious sites." The announcement came after at least one gunman killed 49 people and wounded over 20 others in an attack during Friday prayers in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. Reuters reports that France is home to the largest Muslim minority population in Western Europe and suffered deadly Islamist militant attacks in 2015 and 2016.
